It’s Scams Awareness Week!

IP Australia want you to Be yourself. Don’t let a scammer be you.

This Scams Awareness Week we are partnering with a number of Australian Government agencies and businesses to bring light on how to protect personal information and prevent identity crime.

Did you know that scams cost Australians, businesses, and the economy hundreds of millions of dollars each year and that’s just the ones reported?

As scammers become smarter and we continue to do more things online it’s important to understand how you can identify, protect from and report scams so others don’t fall victim.  

Resources including the simple steps you can take to protect yourself against scams are available on the Scamwatch website.
